For the entire month of May every year for the past 30 years, a group of five men have organized a no-holds-barred game of tag. They are allowed to make ammendments to it, but don't allow anyone else to join their game.

This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, Jerry (Jeremy Renner). He doesn't invite his friends to the wedding as he knows they are determined to tag him. It's also the year Jerry decides to retire from the game.

They come up with a new ammendment so that they don't ruin the wedding -- they won't play the game during any wedding functions. But no matter how hard they try, Jerry always seems to be one step ahead of them.

Based on a true story, this comedy shows how the game has kept these guys connected for 30 years and given them a reason to be in each other's lives, through thick and thin. It also shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

  • 3 stars "It's a strange way to keep in touch with friends, ... and rivals. But if you think about it ... is it a whole lot stranger than liking the same songs, books, etc, that you liked many years ago, even though you've probably outgrown a lot of that material? This movie's no classic, but it will likely get you thinking about any long term friendships you do have."
  • 3 stars "Not funny as expected."
  • 1 star "Not funny. Vulgar language sexual themes throughout. Could have been a good movie but for the language etc. Some people walked out part way into the movie. Hard time giving it one star but had too so I could submit review."
